Newcastle United is proud to be at the heart of its city and community. We are 'open for business', communicating and dealing with all our supporters, partners and customers in an inclusive and respectful way. We display pride and passion in our work and in recognising our corporate social responsibility we act as an inspiration for our people and wider community. We are United.
Newcastle United operates clear ticket policies that outline the minimum level of service that a supporter can expect to receive when dealing with the Club.
The latest ticket news, including ticket prices, is available from the Box Office, in official Club publications including our matchday programme, by calling the ticket information line on 0844 372 1892 (Option 1, Option 1) and from www.nufc.co.uk/tickets.
The Club offers a range of ticket prices to ensure that watching football at St. James' Park is accessible to as wide a proportion of our community as possible. We operate a number of ticket price categories dependent upon the opposition and the day/time of the fixture. Ticket prices are announced on a match by match basis.
We offer the following concessionary prices:
// Junior supporters (aged 18 years and under on 1 September of the relevant season) receive up to 50% discount on standard price.
// Senior citizens (aged 65 years and over on 1 September of the relevant season) receive up to 25% discount on standard price.
// Students in full time education receive up to 25% discount on standard price.
// Disabled supporters receive up to 50% discount on the equivalent price. Carers are admitted free of charge.
Concessionary prices are available in all areas of the ground. Please note that we must see valid documentation to support any discount applied and that the management's decision is final.
We are committed to encouraging greater numbers of families to St. James' Park and have allocated over 12% of the stadium capacity (over 6.000 seats) in the Milburn Stand and Leazes northwest corner to family groups and junior supporters. Pricing in this area has been adjusted to make attendance as accessible as possible.
Visiting supporters are accommodated in the Leazes Stand (Level 7) with tickets available on a sale or return basis. Away ticket prices are the same as those prices charged to home supporters in comparable seating accommodation. All concessionary rates are also available to visiting supporters. Up to 15% of grand capacity is available for away fans in FA Cup and Carling Cup competitions. In this instance away fans will be allocated the Leazes stand (Level 7), and other adjacent areas.
Access to tickets
Tickets go on sale for home matches up to 6 weeks prior to the fixture.
Tickets are sold in the following order:
// Members - Priority period
// General Sale (Online only)
// General Sale (Online, Telephone and Box Office)
Tickets are available to purchase on the day of a match from the main Box Office at the South West Corner of the stadium. Matchday ticket collections are made from the South Stand Box Office from 2 hours prior to kick off. For collections please bring proof of purchase and suitable ID.
Tickets go on sale for away matches up to 6 weeks prior to the fixture.
Tickets for away matches are sold in the following order:
// Season Ticket Holders
Away tickets are usually sold in stages to the supporters with the highest value of loyalty points, this is to ensure that supporters who have been to more games are rewarded. One away loyalty point is allocated for every away game ticket purchased. Season ticket holders can receive a maximum of 1 loyalty point per game. Away matches are not sold to the general public.
For non-UK matches the club will need details of the supporters passport and travel agenda.
Tickets for cup matches may go on sale closer to the date of the fixture due to the timescales between rounds. Season ticket holders will be given a priority period during which they can purchase their seat and additional tickets, should they be available. Following this there will be a short Member sale.
Persistent standing is NOT permitted in any part of the stadium. It is a breach of Ground Regulations and of the conditions of entry into the stadium.
Persistent standing causes an increased risk to public safety and also obstructs the view of others who do not want to stand, or are unable to stand.
The club requests that supporters do not persistently stand during matches and sit when requested to do so by stewards and other supporters.
Any supporters who persistently stand will be identified and sanctions will be taken against them.
Such sanctions may include;
- ejection from the stadium
- banned from future matches
- removal of season tickets
The Club's policy on abandoned games is as follows:
Spectators will be admitted to the rearranged fixture free of charge if the match is abandoned prior to kick off, including if the match is abandoned after spectators have been admitted to the ground, but before kick-off.
If a match is abandoned after kick-off, spectators are entitled to half-price admission to the rearranged match.
Tickets for home may be returned to the Club for a full refund provided that tickets are received by the Box Office 72 hours prior to kick off. Tickets for away matches will be refunded in full when received by the Box Office 72 hours prior to kick off where there is no liability on the Club to pay the opposition club for the ticket. Where the opposition club requires the Club to pay for the ticket no refunds are permissible.
Box Office Fees
The following fees apply for lost or forgotten season cards and match tickets:
- Replacement smartcard; first replacement £5, subsequent replacements £10 each. Stolen tickets will be replaced free of charge provided that a crime number is provided to the Box Office.

Disabled Supporter Facilities
Disabled supporters can purchase season tickets or tickets on a match by match basis and receive a discount of 50% compared to the equivalent standard rate. There is no limit to the number of tickets available to disabled supporters although St. James' Park is only able to accommodate 170 wheelchair users and therefore tickets for this group of supporters are subject to availability. Where a disabled supporter requires a carer, the carer will be admitted free of charge.
Proof of disability is required from those supporters wishing to purchase a disabled concession priced ticket.
This could take the form of the following:
- Receipt of the middle or high rate care element or the high rate mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (please note that DLA is being replaced by Personal Independence Payments (PIP's) and it is unclear how these changes will impact on the level of proof which should reasonably be accepted (we suggest you seek advice from Level Playing Field on this matter once the new regime has bedded in (expected to be late 2013));
- Receipt of either the Severe Disablement Allowance or Attendance Allowance;
- War Pensioners' Mobility Allowance or War or Service Disablement Pension for 80% or more disability;
- Blind or partially sighted registration certificate (BD8 or CVI Certificate) or evidence from an eye specialist, for example an optometrist, that the individual would qualify to be registered as severely sight impaired (blind) or sight impaired (partially sighted). Further advice can be found on the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) website;
- Confirmation in writing from Social Services that the individual is included on their Deaf Register, or a letter or report from an aural specialist confirming that hearing loss has been recorded at 70 - 95 dBHL or worse.
- Confirmation in writing from Social Services that the individual has a learning difficulty or disability. This may include Proof of registration with Social Services, or if not on the Local Authority Register, a letter from a doctor or support worker confirming that the individual has a difficulty in learning new skills, or may be unable to cope independently. For children - a letter from the head teacher at a special needs school confirming eligibility will be acceptable. NB: This list is not exhaustive and consideration will be given to any other evidence that can be provided.
Proof of eligibility for a disabled concession is required for the first ticket purchase per season only although the Club reserves the right to request proof of eligibility at any time. Please note the decision of the Box Office Manager is final in assessing eligibility for this concession rate.
The Club encourages fans with disabilities to inform them of their personal situations in order to allow them to make the matchday experience as comfortable as possible. Arrangements can also be made for any fan suffering from a temporary disability (eg broken leg/ankle) which could affect their ease of access to and from the stadium (subject to availability and sufficient notice).

The club offer a total of 170 wheelchair spaces around the ground, including some in the section set aside for visiting supporters. Each space includes room for a helper, and has easy access from ground level outside of St. James' Park up into the relevant stand.
